Holed and Modified Coins

On this page we list coins that have been holed or modified in other ways. Some coins have been modified for use as weights or jewelry. We may include coins on this page that have graffiti, clipping or other damage.

|Flavius| |Victor|, |Flavius| |Victor,| |c.| |387| |-| |28| |July| |388| |A.D.||siliqua|
In England, where many siliquae are found clipped, silver Roman coins apparently continued to circulate long after the Empire abandoned the island. Clipping may not have been primarily intended to deviously obtain a little silver. Clipping may have actually been performed primarily to make the weight and value equivalent to contemporary coins in the medieval period.
